Farmers get green signal for Tractors’ March

Leaders of the agitating farmers on Saturday night announced that the Delhi Police have given permission to them to take out Tractors’ Rally on the occasion of Republic Day.

Making the announcement the leader of Swaraj India, Yogendra Yadav, said that after five rounds of talks between the farmers and the police of Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh farmers have been given green signal to take out Tractors’ March on Jan 26.

The fifth and final round of talks lasted for over five hours. The farmers would be entering Delhi from five points and cover 100 kilometres. But they would be allowed to take out their Tractors’ Rally only after the official Republic Day Parade is concluded. They would be allowed to take the rally up to the select points and then return to the borders.

Terming the rally as historic the farmers’ leaders claimed that the routes would be finalised on Sunday.

According to reports the Delhi Police has asked the farmers to give in writing the proposed routes, the number of tractors which would take part and the timings.

The permission given by the Police to farmers for the Republic Day Tractors’ Rally is being interpreted as a sort of victory for the latter, who have been camping on the borders of Delhi since the Constitution Day—November 26.

Incidentally, the agreement in this regard has come just a day after the breakdown of 11th round of talks between the farmers and the Centre.
